Hello everybody !
Unfortunately I received 2nd speeding ticket in past 6 months few days ago For past 2 or so years I've been running Beltronics 965 and it's been serving great.
1st ticket happened when I was going down VERY steep hill and dam cop was at the very bottom of it hiding behind car which made it nearly impossible to see him. In addition, basterd was using POP or QT so I saw him exact moment he pressed the trigger and my radar screamed. Fat basterd gave me ticket for full value without giving any break whatsoever...
2nd ticket that I received few days ago is what made me really mad. It was raining pretty decently and roads were wet. I was not driving much higher than speed limit. So then about quarter mile or so I see a cop sitting on side of the highway FACING same direction as me. As I was getting closer I could see that he started moving and I had gut feeling that he will go after me. Guess what? He did pull me over and gave me a ticket. When I asked him how in the world did he radar me if he was facing the other direction and whether he used radar or laser he mumbled: "I used radar. We also have ability to catch speed of multiple vehicles at a time". "I also don't have to explain you anything. Just sign this ticket"
So here are my questions:
1. I have NEVER seen cops sit on the highway facing the same direction as traffic to catch speeders. Usually they sit perpendicular or facing opposite direction as you... How did he catch me? Was he sitting there whole time turning his body 180degrees and hanging out the window?
2. The very strange thing is that my Beltronics 965 NEVER went off. Usually if detector doesn't give you advanced warning they will still BEEP the exact same second when cop is blasting you head-on? Is this not right?
3. So I've been happy for the past 2 years with my 965. Do you guys think it's crap and it's worth upgrading to V1?
The thing is that I live in TN and there are not many cops around my city and neighborhood. So I am thinking it would be kinda wasting of $ if I buy best RD..
